An agreement to establish a UK-China climate change working group was signed today by UK Environment Secretary David Miliband and the Chinese Minister for National Development and Reform Commission Ma Kai.
The working group will help feed into and shape discussions and activities under the Gleneagles Dialogue, the EU-China Partnership on Climate Change and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
Welcoming the new working group, Mr Miliband said: “One of the UK 's key international climate change objectives is to collaborate with major emerging economies such as China to accelerate progress towards our long-term goal of moving towards a global low carbon economy and puts in place an effective international framework to tackle climate change."
